University of Limerick Student Life
The Student Volunteering Working Group would like to publicly reaffirm our commitment in elevating equality and inclusion for all student volunteers. We believe it is vitally important that all students feel valued, respected and supported.
We acknowledge that racism can be unintentional or unconscious, and that identifying racism as an issue does not automatically mean those involved in the act are racist or intended the negative impact. However, Ireland is not free of racism and therefore we can and must do better to listen and learn.
Some resources and contacts available are listed below. As part of our commitment we are resolved to the following actions
